The CanCollar is cool. It’s also perfect for craft breweries who want to embrace better environmental stewardship. WestRock’s CanCollar is a durable, environmentally friendly, paperboard-based multipack solution for cans. The CanCollar is made from 86 percent renewable fiber and up to 15 percent recycled content. But maybe the best part of the CanCollar setup is that WestRock (an American paper and packaging manufacturer) also makes the machinery that smaller brewers and beverage companies can use to pack cans using the CanCollar. Watch the video above to see how easy these suckers are to install over your cans. The machinery, known as The Chunk, has helped breweries reduce line labor by 30 percent, giving one employee the ability to apply CanCollar to a full case of 24 cans in 12 seconds using a simple one-motion applicator.

BillerudKorsnäs launches Pure Performance, a White Top Kraftliner that combines high strength, excellent printability and purity in one material. Pure Performance is a unique paper product that offer packaging material reduction thanks to its 3-ply construction.
Pure Performance is one of the first products from the world´s most modern board machine KM7 at BillerudKorsnäs and has received great appreciation among customers within the corrugating industry. Pure Performance offers extraordinary strength thanks to a 3-ply construction with optimized fiber properties:
*The top ply contains well distributed short white fibers optimized for excellent printability.
*The bottom ply has unbleached long fibers for highest strength.
*The middle ply is used to create bulk in order to maximize stiffness and minimize washboarding.
“The 3-ply construction of Pure Performance enables great opportunities to optimize liner strength and to go down one grammage step compared to traditional White top Kraftliner grades on the market. The combination of this superior strength and qualitative printability makes Pure Performance a unique product that offers true sustainability savings and packaging material reduction”, says Rolf Gustafsson, Business Segment Director Containerboard at BillerudKorsnäs.
Pure Performance is a strong addition to the BillerudKorsnäs family of Pure Liners. All our liners are produced from 100% primary fibers, sourced from responsible forestry. Primary fibers are extraordinary strong which allows the customers to use a lower grammage. 100% primary fibers also enable Pure Performance to meet the toughest food contact standards and therefore this product complies with demanding product- and food safety regulations.
